Bravo Zulu: Coast Guard elite athletes of the year, unit sports team of the year

The honor of elite athlete of the year is achieved by hard work, dedication and skill. The title is bestowed on one Coast Guard female and one male athlete each year. These athletes reached this high level of athletic success on their own time, after performing their military duties and responsibilities. Recently, the Coast Guard announced the two Coast Guard active duty members that earned this award for their athletic accomplishments in 2015, as well as a new award honoring a Coast Guard team.
